3 Reasons Why You Should Use Fragrance-Free Skin Care
1. Fragrances cause irritation, and can have long-term effects
Most scented skin care products have been proven to cause skin irritation, breakouts, redness, and other harmful impacts over time. And believe it or not, fragrance irritation doesn’t only affect those with sensitive skin – it can be problematic for all types of skin! Even if not evident right away, it may be breaking down your skin gradually.
2. Fragrances and perfumes are just a cover-up
A common reason why skin care and cosmetic products use fragrances is to mask the natural odor of ingredients, that aren’t necessarily “aromatic”. Although these perfumes give you an immediate satisfaction, it could be what is causing those pesky breakouts or the dry skin you’ve been experiencing!
3. Products labeled “Unscented” aren’t the answer
Watch out! Many products that are labeled “unscented” are no better for your skin, as they often contain neutralizing chemical agents to kill the natural ingredient scents – defeating the purpose of avoiding fragrant products in the first place!
Metrin is here to help!
Our goal at Metrin Skincare, for the past 87 years, has been to limit or neutralize our customers’ exposure to skin irritation and harm by maintaining its proven formulation and ingredients that have a long history of efficacy and safety. The Metrin Skincare System continues to be formulated without fragrances, dyes, gluten, and is purely vegan.
“I have been using Metrin for over 18 years and have found it to be wonderful for the following reasons – due to my various allergies, it particularly suits me because it does not have a perfume. Most importantly, it keeps my skin soft and moisturized.” – Nerelle P, devoted Metrin user for over 18 years
Rich with certified organic ingredients and added vitamins, our fragrance-free Skincare System is specifically designed to work in harmony with your skin’s natural processes while cleansing, nourishing, and protecting it. Many beneficial skin care ingredients (antioxidants, for example) have a natural scent which cause no irritation and are great for skin, including organic aloe vera and sunflower seed oil.
If you are sensitive to scents or have skin problems such as rosacea, dry skin, eczema, redness — it is ideal for you to use fragrance-free skin care products. While they may have a characteristic natural scent (derived from essential oils and plant extracts), it’s noteworthy that this is simply because fragrance-free brands have made a conscious choice not to add extra chemical perfumes to mask these natural ingredient scents.
“I’m a huge fan of Metrin. I have problem skin (eczema) and Metrin is the only product that has ever worked for me. I have used Metrin exclusively since I first tried it 15 years ago.” – Donna L, firm Metrin believer for over 15 years
